Adam Playing For Second Place – Will It Work?
It appears Adam has resigned himself to the fact he has little chance against either Rachel or Porsche in the finals as a result of him floating through a game against people preaching how they hate floaters. For some reason, both Rachel and Porsche have said they were taking each other to the finals, and this would leave him with a big fat goose egg as a reward for spending the 3rd most time in the house this summer.
Realizing that even the $50k prize for second place is a pretty solid reward, Adam has come up with a plan to win that, and it’s so un-Adam-Like.
His plan is, on the day of the finale (so they don’t get much time to think about it), he’s going to pull each girl aside and basically throw his vote around finally (Something Kalia should have done, but chose to sleep instead). Because Rachel wants the grand prize for her wedding, and Porsche wants to move to L.A. and get her career going (creating her own line of sweat pants?), both girls need the grand prize more than he does and could be swayed by a tactic he clearly picked up from Jeff.
Although I disagree with him, his thought is if it were those two, the votes would look like this:
For Rachel: Jeff, Jordan, Brendon
For Porsche: Daniele, Kalia, Shelly
With that, he’s going to throw his weight around and tell them that he’s going to vote for the other girl if they don’t take him to the finals. (Meaning he’ll tell Porsche that his vote is for Rachel if she doesn’t take him, and vice versa).
Personally, I don’t see the votes like that, and Rachel really might not either. Rachel has played one hell of a game, and I’d be shocked if the votes weren’t 5-2 in her favor, or even 6-1. Like her or not, it’s hard to deny this:
Votes this season: 11
Head of Household wins: 3 times
Nominated: 5 times (removed by veto twice)
So in 72% of the votes this season, Rachel has either been head of household or nominated which shows she didn’t sit around and sleep all summer. If she wasn’t winning HoH, she was nominated and either winning veto or campaigning her ass off. That’s quite an impressive season, and if she’s in the final 2 and loses, there were either dumb or spiteful people in the jury.
Adam’s plan may work on either girl, and if it does, good for him. It’s about time someone actually threw some weight around instead of just sucking up to people all season long. Jeff was the only person in the house all season who had the guts to take that approach, so it’s not surprising his protégé is the only other one with that strategy.
I thought this week was going to be boring, but was I wrong?
